TLIP attorneys have a long tradition of university drafting work.  We work with the Cavendish Laboratory and have made many friends with the academics based with the optoelectronics group.

Our attorneys invest time helping busy commercialisation managers meet various targets on a constrained budget.  These targets might be related to the number of invention disclosures harvested, the number of seminars given to researchers or making the budget stretch to a number of priority filings, in the likely event that some will be abandoned prior to PCT or national phase stage.

Some recent highlights over the last 4 years include:

A patentability of software workshop at Santa Clara University, California; Intro to IP seminar at University of Bradford; presentation at Cambridge University; joint filings with the Fraunhofer Institute, meeting at Liverpool John Moores; strategy meeting at Liverpool University; fund raising at Heriot Watt University; meeting industry representatives at MIT, Boston; meeting a Professor of Chemistry at Imperial College London to talk fuel cells; meeting Professor Sir Richard Friend to discuss triplets (the excitons not the baby variety); cycling with the Head of Physics and Astronomy, Durham University; enjoying the craic at Dublin City University; talking fundraising with Leeds University and paying renewal fees for Loughbourgh University.

We have very specific patent drafting strengths in the following technical sectors:

Wound healing
Mammalian diagnostics
Biomarkers
Gene technology
Proteins
Peptides
Biological medical implants
